New Model Army

New Model Army - My Country

rate me

Tell all the people who believe what they read in the press

Tell all the folk who stare from behind suburban walls

The enemy is not some nation far across the sea

The enemy is with us every single breathing day

Chorus:

So yes, I will fight for my country

The land that I love so well

Yes - for justice, a land fit for all our futures

Yes, I will fight for my country

The land that I love so well

Hear the voices of our history echo all around

Fight all the ones who divide us rich against poor

Fight all the ones who divide us white against black

Fight all the powers who want their missiles in our earth

Fight all the people who would lead us into war

No rights were ever given to us by the grace of God

No rights were ever given by some United Nations clause

No rights were ever given by some nice guy at the top

Our rights they were bought by all the blood

And all the tears of all our

Grandmothers, grandfathers before

For all the folk who gave their lives for us

For all the folk who spit out - never say die

For all the fires burning on our highest hills

For all the people spinning tales tonight

Fight all the powers who would abuse our Common Laws

Fight all the powers who think they only owe themselves . . .
